Product Description

Product Description

Since 1946, proprietary horn-loaded technology has been the driving force behind the Klipsch’s highly acclaimed, stunningly precise sound. Superior quality, horn-loaded speakers are an absolute must for delivering the powerful, detailed soundtracks of today’s demanding blockbusters. Perhaps that’s why 50 percent of all new theaters in North and South America, as well as Korea and Australasia install Klipsch products. Klipsch’s ongoing experience in the cinema industry is a significant benefit to you because the cutting-edge research that drives the development of the company’s professional theater speakers is also applied to its home theater systems. The same advanced Tractrix Horn geometry and compression driver technology that reproduces a more genuine, lifelike sound in theaters is inside the HD Theater 300. Horn designs dramatically increase efficiency, enabling Klipsch speakers to produce more output using less energy. This improves reliability and reduces distortion, so you hear exactly what the artists and directors intended, instead of speaker coloration.

From the Manufacturer

Expect exceptional value from this robust and compact 5.1 Theater system designed to make High Definition TV and sources really come to life with the Power, Detail and Emotion Klipsch speakers are famous for. Exclusive horn-loaded design that has made Klipsch famous for over 60 years and which provides unequalled detail and dynamics, is at the heart of the 4 small High Gloss Black speakers and center channel. A perfectly matched powered subwoofer delivers Klipsch-quality bass with heart-pounding special effects and full-bodied music, all from a compact enclosure featuring a heavy-duty 6.5" driver and 80watt RMS amplifier.

I picked this speaker combo up with the Harmon Kardon AVR-1600 that Amazon was running a deal on. I must say I've always wanted Klipsch floorstanding speakers, but cost (at this point in my college age) has prohibited me from purchasing. When I saw this deal on Klipsch speakers I jumped to the opportunity. I took two days to run all of the speaker wires through the walls of my house (living room) and mount the front three speakers on the front wall, and the back two speakers on the ceiling beside our couch. I used 16 guage wire from the local "BB" big box store. I ran my AVR-1600s "mic" to our listening position, ran the setup test, and threw in the movie Clash of the Titans on Blue Ray. I could tell I was outputting the audio in Dobly Prologic II and or Dobly DTS sound, via my receiver, and it sounded awesome! I watch movies through my PS3, to my receiver, and to my Sony KDLXBR5. I can't say enough about how good the sound with these speakers sounded to me. I realize that they're not the best you can buy by any means, but they sound very clear. The bass at first sounded a bit weak at times so I moved it farther to the right, within a foot of the 'right' wall and now it sounds great!
Also, I was a bit worried about the power of the speakers when I bought them because I have a "great room" style living room that opens up to my kitchen/dining room on the side, and a long entrance way to the back (no rear wall) so it's a rather large room! I can say that these Klipsch speakers fill my room with sound very easily for movies(tested w/ PS3 Clash of the Titans on BlueRay), tv (tested w/ HD antenna for over the air), video games (tested w/ Uncharted 2 for PS3), and music (tested w/ normal MP3 music via PS3).

I picked these speakers up along with a new receiver. Right away I loved the home theater experience. The dialogue comes through crystal clear and the bass is nice and tight. On top of the movie experience, the real bright spot is the music experience. Pop a music DVD in and these speakers bring it to life. I can't say enough about how these speakers have improved my home theater experience!

I bought these to replace my old surround sound speakers. The sound is amazing, no problems with the sub-woofer either(as mentioned by a previous reviewer.) For the price I paid,(purchased a couple of days after Christmas on Amazon)and the quality sound these small speakers put out, I couldn't be happier. The set up was easy, I like the speaker wall mounts, you can adjust them sideways, but not up and down. After I installed them, all I had to do was tweak them some with the settings on my surround sound receiver. Also, I accidently dropped one of the speakers pretty hard as I was setting it up, and it still works. So that shows me they are made to last. Do yourself a favor, if you don't have surround sound, give these speakers a try, I don't think you'll be disappointed.

Ordered on monday and got it on thursday, the package looked scary though. Its in the original manufacturer box, and these guys just put a FedEx sticker on top of it. They charged an arm for shipping itself, so expected some decent shipping. From outside I felt as if the item was used for a long time and returned, was damaged at certain places. But nothing like that inside, it looked very neat and clean.

Was very impressed with the quality and the cuteness of the speakers. Mine is a living room, I don't want the things to look big and cluttered. These speakers does exactly that, its kind of camouflaged in front of the black TV. I don't even notice that its there.

One irritating part is - there are no cables of any kind. So be ready to purchase the speaker cables for all the 5 speakers. The subwoofer has 2 RCA inputs. So from my Yamaha 5063 receiver, I need a splitter cable like "1 RCA male to 2 RCA male". I didn't know about this part earlier, so right now I connected just a regular RCA audio cable.

I haven't connected surround speakers yet, just the front 3 speakers and subwoofer. Oh boy, the whole living room rocks and its just 50% subwoofer, and I had to reduce that to 30%. And when comes to voice its so crystal clear. I never miss any dialogues from the movies.

1) very clear voice
2) can be as loud as you want
3) subwoofer rocks
4) small and cute

1) manual is junk, subwoofer has few more controls, and at this point I don't even know what its for
2) no cables

The good: the satelite and center speakers sound and look great, they're much smaller than i thought they'd be.

The bad: the sub is horrible, you can't turn it up or it distorts, does not put out nearly enough bass for me, the wire clips on the speakers are terrible, they don't hold on to the wire tight enough and it pulls out easily while moving the speaker.

I bought this set after moving in with my girlfriend and her deciding my big sony floor speakers were too big. I'm running them on an older techniqs 5.1 ch 500 watt receiver. I daisy-chained the sub to my existing sony 12 inch 120 watt sub and turned the cutoff frequency up and the level to about half, sounds pretty good. I would not reccomend this product as a stand-alone home theater system to anyone who expects butt-thumping bass. If you already have a good sub, this ststem is fine, the mids and highs are crystal-clear, the speakers look nice and they are very small for the amount of sound they produce.
